Spend the weekend InStyle!!

Happy Sunday everyone!! I hope your weekend is going well. If you have a 3 day weekend, even better!!

I told you I would share my daughter's award's day news with you. For those of you that don't know, my daughter is in the 3rd grade and we had awards day this week. I am proud of her whether she wins an award or not, but she actually brought home the Computer Award out of her class of 22 and she brought home an award for being on the Principal's Honor Roll for the ENTIRE year!!!! Yay, Brittany!! She also won an award on Field Day. She took home 3rd place in the egg carrying contest!! lol (the old egg on a spoon, remember) Out of 300 something students, that's pretty good!! So there you go.

Ok, onto business! I wanted to share a card I made using InStyle Stamps Anime image Mike and Jessie. Aren't they just the cutest ever? I know I say this every time but these images really are so versatile and fun to use. You could use this image for birthdays, get well, congrats, thinking of you, thanks, you get the picture! It's perfect for any occasion.

For my card I paper pieced Jessie's dress and boots with Die Cuts with a View Spring Stack paper. The rest of the image is colored with my copics. My sentiment stamp is by Stampendous. I used Bazzill cardstock and the glittery paper is from the DCWV Glitter Spring Stack. I highlighted with my white InkEssentials gel pen that I got from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. My flowers are Primas and the brads are Making Memories. The ribbon is Bo Bunny. I used this week's Stamps and Smiles sketch challenge for my card layout. Yay I got a challenge done this week!! They have the greatest sketches and the cutest stamps. You should check them out.

Don't forget, we have our InStyle Stamps blog hop this Friday. Woo hoo!! I'll have more information for you soon. I hope you enjoy my card. I'm glad you stopped by to visit and I hope you'll leave me a comment. I truly do love reading your comments, they mean so much to me! I'll be back on Monday with something else to show you, so be sure you come back to visit!! Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!!
